Hansford Sensors has expanded its presence in the North American market by setting up a dedicated sales operation near Greenville, South Carolina. The move will enable the company to further enhance its customer services and meet growing demand for its advanced vibration monitoring solutions.
The company’s new 4,000 square foot facility is run by Vice President of Sales Martin Armson, who has spent his entire career in instrumentation sales at several leading companies in the sector.
Having its base in South Carolina will allow Hansford Sensors to optimise delivery times and provide superior support to customers across North America. Customers are now ensured of next-day delivery, thanks to investment in higher inventory levels.
Speaking about the new facility, Armson commented: “Hansford Sensors is delighted to be opening our first dedicated facility in North America. Delivering an unrivalled level of service and support is what we’ve become renowned for around the world; the new facility and our professional team enables us to ensure this for customers. We’ll also have better market intelligence, allowing us to develop products for the specific requirements of the region.”
In the past three years, Hansford Sensors has set up direct sales operations in Germany and India and seen total sales leap by 25%. The company says that its presence in these countries – as well as Australia and in the UK – gives it a distinct advantage over some of its US-based competitors.
“We have a global footprint, while our competitors tend to be based in only one region,” says Armson. “This puts us in an ideal position to support multi-national companies across a number of geographies.”
